Sometimes in life there are people who manage to be both hilarious and terrifying.
Donald Trump. Gabi Grecko. Circus clowns. Gordon Ramsay.
The latter did a Reddit "AMA" (which stands for "ask me anything") and his responses didn't disappoint. They were ruthless, frank, sweary and thoroughly entertaining.
Here are some of our favourite moments ...
"Hi, Gordon. You're my hero. My girlfriend is typically not much of an adventurous eater; she is, however, curious to try casu marzu or 'maggot cheese'. Having witnessed you try it on The F Word, I have to ask: is she bonkers or am I?"
"So, casu marzu is a very strong cheese. If she's not a very adventurous eater, I don't think she's going to be too keen having maggots in her mouth. But, I don't want to just talk about your willy.
Here's the thing. In order to get these tastebuds moving faster, have a bit of fun with this. Blindfold her, and have some fun with spooning her some sort of strange, awkward, sexy foods, and you'll see that confidence fly in a way that she'll get so much more exciting with all flavours. But blindfold her, have some fun with it, and play with it. You'll see she'll get more adventurous."
Side note: we enjoyed cleftdub's summary of this exchange:
"You just got insulted and then given sex advice by Gordon F*****g Ramsay. You can die now."
Another Reddit user asked about his least favourite food trend:
Ramsay responded: "I think foam should be used for shaving, not go on top of food. Because when a foam hits a plate, unless you've eaten it within three or four seconds, at the end it looks like sort of toxic scum on a stagnant pool. So I started with foams in the 90s, and I'm still amazed that they're around now. So we need to get rid of the foam, and keep foam for shaving."
Someone asked about the five dishes that everyone needs to know how to cook
Ramsay responded: "Everyone enjoys a great burger, so that's really important. You get that really smart blend. Burger would be number one.
"A healthy breakfast. Whether it's poached eggs, smashed avocado, or an amazing omelet. Now that is crucial! That's dish number two a really good breakfast.
"Number three would be a braising dish. Like a braised short rib because it's the kind of thing you can cook on a Monday and still eat on Friday. So a braising dish, whether it's braised short rib, tri-tip, just something really cool braised!
"Then from a healthy point of view; a chicken dish, in terms of a white protein, would be a go to favourite with a chicken. Whether it's a sauteed chicken or even a delicious marinade with chicken caesar salad.
"Finally, for my fifth dish, I would turn that into some amazing cake. It could be a Blondie or a Chocolate Brownie, something you can give as a gift. Taking amazing deserts, as a gift, to somebody and eating it with them is so much more enjoyable then buying them a scarf, or a jumper, or a pair of socks. Spending three or four hours making this thing, and spending hundreds of dollars on ingredients, and doing something magical, is far more exciting then buying a f*****g jumper that you know they aren't going to wear!"
Hey Gordon, huge fan. Quick question, if you were on death row, what are you ordering for your last meal?
That's a really good question, because for the last 10 years I've been asked that about 2000 f*****g times. I'm never gonna answer that question.
A) I'm not that bad to be on death row, and,
B) If it was my last supper, ask me that question in 40 years' time when I'm 90 years of age, I can't go to the bathroom properly, and I need my a** wiped on a regular basis.
So, yeah. Gimme four decades' time, and I may be close to answering that question, because I could be nearing my last supper. Until now, f*** off. I'm miles away."
